Type 2 diabetes - soup and shake diets

You may have heard on media channels that the NHS is offering free soup and shake diets for people with Type 2 diabetes. The initiative is being rolled out in specific areas of the country. In the South East this is Frimley Health & Care STP, therefore this is not yet available for Kent and Medway patients.  We have asked that NHSE inform us when the plan for further roll-out will be available so we can update you all - we know that some practices have already had enquiries from patients.
 
In the meantime, you can direct patients to resources available – the One You programme in Kent and Diabetes UK have a range of resources available to provide support, with topics including exercise for being active at home, diet, and mental wellbeing while staying at home or self-isolating.
